Deke's Techniques: The Illustrator Challenge Winners!

Who the hell told you that you were any good at Illustrator?? Well, if you entered Deke's Techniques: The Illustrator Challenge, whoever they were, they were right! In fact, as a whole, the 11 entries we received for The Illustrator Challenge were even better than those we received for The Photoshop Challenge. Which is saying a lot. As I plowed through the movies, it seemed like each one just kept getting better than the last. Which made for some very difficult choices.

But as usual, I had my crack team of illustrious judges to help me out. And as a team, we came up with the following winners.

Grand Prize: Monogram Snowflake

Coming in at Number One is Deanne Topping (pingtop), who will receive $6300 in prizes, including Creative Suite 6: Design & Web Premium.

(Or perhaps it's in honor of Deanne? I'll never tell ;-)
